Flower Gems - bedding plants and color

I knew today I was ready for a change of pace and these flowers, ready to be planted just called out to me. As always, the first temptation is to paint every single flower and shape and spot of color...... but as my brush touches the canvas, I try to hear my inner voice saying  "less is more, less is more, less is more......." I still got quite a few in though... :)

Pin It


  1. "Less is more" is my "maxim" too Mary! :-) - Seriously, I love your expressive brushwork and your exquisite mastery of color; truly a wonderful piece.

  2. Bonjour ma chère amie,
    Il est bien difficile de résister à la tentation d'en rajouter encore et encore... Quand on aime on ne compte pas !...
    Une bien belle pétarade de couleurs.
    Une peinture remplie de fraîcheur...
    Maintenant au travail, il faut planter et arroser !

  3. Just beautiful Mary! And your "less is more" mantra really makes this more exciting I think. :-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
